P6B have been learning about pop art and Andy Warhol and took inspiration from some of his portraits. They used the design on the cover of their class novel – Wonder – and created versions that looked like them. Then they copied them four times and painted them in the style of Andy Warhol.
P7A have been exploring colour mixing and making shades and hues using watercolours. We used these skills to design and create their versions of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s rose. The roses were different saheds of the same colour and the rest of the design used colour mixing skills to create interesting, vibrant colours.
P7A have finished their tartan designs and have made them into kilts!
P7A have been looking at tartan – finding out what it’s made of, what it signifies and what makes it different from other patterns. We have looked at examples of tartans and today we started designing our own. We are using a range of techniques to produce our patterns – drawing, printing and rolling.
P7A have been studying how to create perspective in their art and have used this to create some wonderful poppy field paintings. The effect is fantastic and has led us to find out a lot about poppies and their symbolism after the First World War.
